Meet Eulogio
 

For as long as he can remember, gourds have been a way of life. Originally gourds were used to carry water for his family and as bowls and wall decoration. THen they became artwork.

“Once you enter the mate world you get a different sense of everything.” say Eulogio Medina, who first learned the craft at age five.

His technique involves rendering on the gourds images of local celebrations, oral traditions, rituals, and myths of the Peruvian highlands. He manages this with stunning, dizzying detail. The craft tradition he carries on from his mother, who in her time was a national champion. “I draw inspiration from the details and personalities of the world around me. The highlands are a rich place,” he says.
